Choose Your Battles - Katy Perry




Experience: You love them... but they keep hurting you. How far do you have to go to try and make them a better person? How long to you have to hold on? When you you give up and leave?

Music Video: Still waiting...

Meaning of Choose Your Battles: Static distorts and twists the heartbeat-like rhythm that opens Choose Your Battles: just like the hurt that finally dooms her efforts to make her lover a better person. When love goes sour, when a relationship isn't healthy, there's a point where you just have to admit that the love is dead, or maybe never even truly there to begin with. That hurts - more than anyone can understand. But admitting it is better than trying to convince yourself that the nightmare is still the dream you started out with.

Ask Yourself: If your love is still a dream come true, what are you doing to keep it alive? If it's nightmare, what are you doing to cut yourself loose?


LYRICS:

You are my hurt locker lover
Keep me walking on a wire
Don't know when you'll blow
So I tiptoe through your triggered mine
You fight me but I'm on your side
Defeated, now retreating

Why you tryna make me your enemy
All you really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover
Oh, this is not a competition
So baby why the ammunition
I don't wanna be the last one standing

Choose your battles, babe
Then you'll win the war
Stop digging your own grave
When there's so much to live for

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

I've tried to pick off your red flags
While dancing on broken glass
Your mind games hit like grenades
We're cursed just like the Kennedys
But you somehow get me on my knees
Defeated, now retreated

Why you tryna make me your enemy
All you really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover
Oh, this is not a competition
So baby why the ammunition
I don't wanna be the last one standing

Choose your battles, babe
Then you'll win the war
Stop digging your own grave
When there's so much to live for

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
I am not fighting anymore
If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
I don't wanna fight no more
Anyway, I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby

(Stop digging your own grave
When there's so much to live for)

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

Anyway, I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay

Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
